I The surgeon was at the nurses station and was MAD that the PPN was not hung yet when he had ordered it at 915. ...When pharmacy sent it up the bag said "HANG AT 1500." The nurse I think was confused about "PPN" and thought that it could not be infused in a peripheral line--it had hydrocortisone in it--...
Wait, you are taking the docs word that the nurse was "confused?"
I'd check with her first. I mean maybe it was a simple mistake on the doc's part. Could be that he ordered a picc or he order the PPN for 1500.
Just because he is blustering loudly doesn't mean that he is right.
First thing I'd do is not automatically assume that my ten year experienced coworker made a mistake or tried to make work easier for herself by listing it for 1500, right? Unity...supporting one another and maintaining a professional standard.
Later, when alone with her I'd ask her what happened but, to the doc I hope I would say, "Well the orders say x y z and that is all I know, would you like it hung now?" That is it. Could be he is totally wrong and she double checked with him in the first place but he was blustering so.
